Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) consists of more more than 300 hotels under 14 different brands in 52 countries. The loyalty program of the GHA is called Discovery and it has three tiers (Gold/Platinum/Black). You can read my original article about this offer here.
Please note that GHA has discontinued this offer. Make sure that you sign up for our Blog email updates newsletter to be notified, when GHA again has a new Platinum sign up offer.
Please note that the earlier sign up link has now been discontinued. We were able to locate (thanks to a LoyaltyLobby reader!) a new offer, however, that is valid at the time of writing this article. By signing up to the GHA Discovery program using this link, you will get an instant Platinum status.
These Platinum benefits include all the gold ones + guaranteed room availability for up to 48 hours before, upgrade to next category, late check out until 3PM, and local amenity.
You won’t earn free night awards with GHA discovery, but they are offering local experiences instead. You earn these at both the Platinum and Black level. You can search for various local experiences once you have signed up for the program using the link above.
GHA also offers 500 airline miles per stay. The list of airline partners can be found here. Currently the partners are Air France-KLM, ANA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern, Emirates, Etihad, Jet Airways, Lufthansa, Qatar, SAS, Singapore Airlines, South African, and Thai.
Seems that this GHA Discovery Platinum sign up promotion is likely to end anytime now. If you are planning to stay at any GHA Discovery affiliated property before February, 2015, it would be wise to sign up now.
